updated to ubuntu 11.10 oneiric ocelot

last night, i finally thought of upgrading to 11.10 oneiric ocelot. damn, i was stupid. i thought everything would complete in one click after completing everything else which i mentioned in my last post. i did complete and it said, it's going to download some 10xx megabytes of data and i slept after clicking on upgrade.

this morning, when i woke up expecting it(downloading and upgrading) to be done already, it wasn't. i had to go through multiple clicks as it asked me to replace multiple(5) files related to network and gnome(remember, i'm using macubuntu). after that, it took about 1 hour to complete. well, i faced no other errors in up-gradation.

important things i noticed.

1. it downloaded and installed multiple font related exe files, maybe because i've installed playonlinux
2. it also downloaded updated versions of all my default (canonical supported/verified apps like evolution, shotwell etc.)
3. somehow the macbuntu is gone but the docky still lies there and it's working to some extent.
4. new login page (but i liked the earlier one).
5. relatively slow i may say. i didn't get to test it completely as these are early comments.

anyway, it's done. i'll update more on what's changed and what's not.
let's tweak it to my basic needs of speed and awesomeness.

happy computing!
